    You've given this way more thought than anybody connected with the movie will have done.

    This.

    Next you'll be saying that Sentinel Primes face was inspired by William Shakespears.

    WOWOWOW.
    Trailers coming out on Lunar events? Bay is an advertising genius.

    Correct, until he's proven right, and then you'll just quietly retreat to the room where all the "I call BS" people hide when someone's post become reality.

    Very plausible. I can even hear the meeting when this was decided. Don't let it get to you. Like I said in another similar thread. Everyone will go hide in a little dark thread when Bay or Nelson admits to this being the case.

    So the next Trailer would be the first week of April?

    Wind your neck in.

    I wasn't criticising his theory. Just saying it's more ingenious than the reality probably is. That O.K with you?

    Again, I think you have the wrong end of the stick too. I wasn't criticising you at all.

    Fuck me, all I said was that you've probably given this more thought than Bay and Co have, not that you have a pile of dead babies in your garage.
    If it turns out this is part of a measured marketing strategy based on the phases of the moon, Kudos to those involved and to you for sussing it out.

    At no point am I "calling bullshit".

    Perfectly fine, except that it's still a statement of doubt, which is what he was reacting to, since every subsequent post resulted in more doubt, such as this:
    which sited your doubt as inspiration.

    I'm just saying that the doubters need to wind their neck down, as you say it. Because none of this stuff is beyond reality.

    Honestly, I should have quoted the guy who quoted you, because you are right in saying that you didn't criticize his theory. But the last three threads that have had people posting very possible news have been met by naysayers who have no real reason to criticize. There, fixed.

    O.K well, apology accepted.
    ...I think?

    And if you check the other thread you mention, I actually thanked the guy for his info.
    It's not down to me what others read into my posts (it was only Trypticons post that was doubtful by the way, not every subsequent post). It wasn't critical of anybody but Bay and Co and even then it was lighthearted. In fact, I would imagine Trypticons post was lighthearted too but you would have to ask him.

    In any case, complete overreaction.

    What the OP is saying has a truth in a way. It maybe coincidence or not. In fact the release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon is happening on an actual "Dark of the Moon" (which is an opposite term for "Full Moon").

    Check it out...
    Did you know? Dark Of The Moon

    That's awesome, but in a way, they should have drawn some attention to it, because it is a cool little marketing angle that should have been a bit more obvious.

    Exactly. If it was marketing gimmick (and why not?) they should have made more of it by now.
    Like a little hint on the website and so on.

    The way they announced events for the original Move Game, where people would look forward to new info every couple of weeks.
